WARNING To reduce the risk of fire and electric shock due to internal component damage, use only the BISSELL® cleaning formula intended for use with this machine.

Keep plenty of genuine BISSELL Spot & Stain Cleaner formula for portable carpet cleaning machines on hand so you can clean whenever it fits your schedule. Always use genuine BISSELL cleaning formulas.

WARNING Do not plug in your cleaner until you are familiar with all instructions and operating procedures.

Filling the Clean Water/Solution Tank

NOTE:  Follow the fill lines on your Clean Water/Solution Tank to add the correct amount of hot tap water (140 degrees F / 60 degrees C MAX) and portable machine formula. Note: There are different directions on the tank for small and large messes. DO NOT BOIL OR MICROWAVE WATER.


IMPORTANT:  Check the manufacturer’s tag before cleaning upholstery. “W” or “WS” on the tag means you can use your cleaner. If the tag is coded with an “S” (with diagonal strike-through), or says “Dry Clean Only,” do not proceed. If the manufacturer’s tag is missing or not coded, check with your furniture dealer.
